It definitely isn't anything for me to call about but it had 99% stopped and then Saturday he started coughing randomly throughout the day and then started getting worse Sunday. We were in Nashville for my Dad to get an award this weekend and my three brothers, a six year old and twin 4 year olds, were coughing. It was a dry cough but quite frequent. I am hoping it is maybe some sort of little bug. If his asthma/allergies start acting up we will have to move before we can get into housing on campus....

Poor little guy. I hope it is just a short lived bug that won't cause him a flare up. Please keep us posted.

So far he is still doing okay. He has the dry cough pretty much all day but no coughiing fits so far. We got the air purifier hooked up. I am still waiting on the humidistat I ordered to come in but hopefully once that gets here we can figure out what size dehumidifier we need to keep things at acceptable levels.

Glad he isn't having coughing fits. I hope the humidifier gets worked out quickly and you can get your home to an acceptable level for Danny. Poor guy.

Well, I am a bit nervous because it is a "dehumidifier." With his mold allergy we need to keep the humidity around 30% It is around 48-49 right now so we need the dehumidifier but I am unsure of how it will affect things. I am hoping that pulling the moisture and thus mold out of the air that he will breath easier but it will also be drier which could make it harder for him to breathe...

OH that does sound precarious. I hope that it helps and doesn't make it harder to breath. When are you expecting it?

We got the humidistat in and so far the humidity has stayed between 30 and 54...54 was the day it rained really badly but other than that it has been between 30 and 49. 30-50 is his optimal range so right now we don't need the dehumidifier. Once spring is full swing I am sure we will be getting one though.
